A few injury updates for the Bears and Giants:
Giants DE Mathias Kiwanuka is OUT for the Sunday night game with a bulging disc. With Osi Umenyiora listed as questionable with a foot injury, the Giants defensive line definitely limps into this contest. Jay Cutler thanks you in advance.
Also out for the Giants are center Shaun O’Hara with an Achilles and tackle Will Beatty with a foot. Maybe that will help the Bears’ D-line get to Eli. Linebacker Keith Bullock is doubtful as well. Those are the most likely to miss.
Defensive tackle Rocky Bernard is questionable with a back. The probables are WR Mario Manningham coming off a concussion, linebackers Chase Blackburn has a knee and Phillip Dillard has a hammy and kick returner Darius Reynaud is ill.
As for the Bears, the news is much better. The hamstring bug will keep left tackle Chris Williams and safety Major Wright out but that’s about the extent of any substantial injuries. Roberto Garza returned to practice on a limited basis, but all indications are that he will suit up.
Through the month of October, my usual BEAR DOWN signoff will be in pink to raise awareness for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
